I am so glad and relieved it arrived cmarion!! I was starting to worry it had gone missing somewhere over the ocean. I'm glad you like it - the idea took a while forming and then bam! I knew what I was going to do. I stumbled across a packet of different size spools in Australia's equivalent to Michael's and the 2 largest ones are from a collection of sewing stuff my grandmother gave me. The bird patterns I found on Etsy from TheDenTree and were exactly what I was looking for.
thanks everyone for your kind words - I was glad to make something anywhere near the magnificence you crafty people create
thanks to our talented organisers too - Missing Willow and HSG - I love these swaps!
Those birds are done beautifully!
I love that the theme was kept in the blue family...just so serene...is the male courting the female? I think so! Proudly showing off his wings...just lovely whenindoubtsew!!!
Isn't it funny how you put things together and not realise what you've done - it would be nice to think the male is getting his flirt-on!!!
